The 150th Open Championship returns to St Andrews, Scotland in 2021 as the Old Course plays host for the 30th time, from July 15-18, 2021. Most recently the Old Course at St Andrews hosted The Open in 2015, when Zach Johnson was crowned Champion Golfer of the Year after defeating Marc Leishman and Louis Oosthuizen in a four hole playoff.
The quaint town of St Andrews is located on the east coast of Fife in Scotland, 10 miles southeast of Dundee and 30 miles northeast of Edinburgh. Named after Saint Andrew the Apostle, the town has been home to an important church since the 8th century and is also site of the University of St. Andrews, the third-oldest university in the English-speaking world and the oldest in Scotland.
